Me age 15 and age 28.

These photos are pre-social media when there were no filters on photos and no pressures to look a certain way. .
Of course there were those who were skinny too and those who were fat but no-one judged or had anywhere to post photos that weren't real. The only place to post a photo was in a personal photo album which stayed in your living room. .

No-one exercised, worked out or went to gyms in the same 'addicted to fitness' way so our bodies were a different shape and less toned than gym bodies of nowadays. .
Maybe we did ballet or horse riding or swam or did some form of sport at school and beyond but only for our personal enjoyment. Not with the same end goals to have the perfect Instagram body. .
We didn't compare or judge. 
No pressures to look a certain way.
We were happier and more confident in our body image then. 
Free to be who we were. .

Frida Kahlo @vamuseum London


Excited for the press preview of Frida Kahlo exhibition at the V&A. . . . . .

Frida Kahlo @vamuseum London. Frida was a unique style icon with her monobrow which she enhanced with makeup, red lips and flowers in her hair. Even with lifelong ill health and adversity she remained extraordinarily stylish in her image.

Frida was beset by health problems throughout her life from contracting Polio as a child to injuries sustained in a car accident which affected her to her early death.
However she remained stoic and stylish all through her pain…

1933 Self-portrait Frida Kahlo exhibition Making herself up @vamuseum London. Frida's mono-brow and facial hair were not the beauty norms even at that time. She used an eyebrow pencil in Ebony to accentuate her brows and Revlon '"everything's rosy" lipstick  and red nail varnish.
